COLLAGE: INSPIRED USES OF WOOD IN DESIGN AND DECOR BY REKHA KRISHNAMURTHI
COLLAGE: INSPIRED USES OF WOOD IN ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN
 
Wood, one of the five elements in Feng Shui, represents new beginnings and fresh energy.  Since wood is also associated with health, family, relationships, abundance and wealth, incorporating wood (from a polished teak bowl to an oversized potted tree) into one’s space will help overcome personal obstacles.
 
Decorating with natural wood décor incorporates the organic element of wood in design. The varying grains and textures are suited for any style. Deep, rich tones and custom finishes create one-of-a-kind luxury.
 
The use of wood in interior design and architecture is evident historically and in modern times.  From traditional homes, to modern day sculpture, the use of wood is a key element in creating an environment of family, sharing and connection with nature.
